293/hTLR2-HA cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293 cells with the pUNO-hTLR2-HA plasmid which expresses the human TLR2 gene fused at the 3'end to the influenza hemaglutinine (HA).

The control cell line for 293/hTLR2-HA cells is 293/null.

TLR2 is involved in the recognition of a wide array of microbial molecules. TLR2 recognizes peptidoglycan, lipoteichoic acid and lipoprotein from gram-positive bacteria, lipoarabinomannan from mycobacteria, and zymosan from yeast cell wall. Moreover, TLR2 participates in the recognition of some types of LPS [1]. TLR2 is known to heterodimerize with other TLRs, a property believed to extend the range of microbial molecules that TLR2 can recognize. TLR2 cooperates with TLR6 in response to diacylated mycoplasmal lipopeptide, and associates with TLR1 to recognize triacylated lipopetides [2]. Furthermore, pathogen recognition by TLR2 is strongly enhanced by CD14 [3].
